How to Treat Bed Bugs
Unfortunately, once an infestation has spread, there is no effective DIY method of bed bug removal. Once a heat or chemical treatment has been arranged, we advise belongings are stored away and the area made as clutter free as possible. Bedding should be stripped and washed on a cycle above 60°C. All of which will enable the treatment to work as quickly as possible.
Diatomaceous earth is commonly used to reduce bed bug activity. This organic compound, made from crushed fossils, is used as part of our heat and chemical treatments, although will not fully eradicate a problem if used alone.

How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs
There are two main options to eradicate bed bugs from your property. A professional heat treatment is the most recommended method. This is the quickest way to destroy an infestation and can kill the bugs at any stage of the life cycle. This includes eggs, which will not be killed by chemicals.
Chemicals can also be effective, but you may need multiple treatments. There is also a risk the bugs will resist the treatment, or scatter throughout the property in an attempt to avoid the chemicals.
